Number of Servings: 12


    1 c onion; chopped
    5 cloves garlic, smashed
    2 - 3 tbsp olive oil
    3 cn whole tomatoes; 28-ounces
    2 c organic vegetable stock (or chicken stock)
    2 ts balsamic vinegar
    1 c milk (2%) or whipping cream (nutritional info is for cream)
    1/2 c chopped fresh basil
    1 salt and pepper; to taste


Saute the onion and garlic in the olive oil in a large saucepan
until the vegetables are tender.

Add the tomatoes and stock. Bring to a boil remove from heat.

Pour into a blender container (you may have to do this in sections - it's a lot of soup). Process until the mixture is pureed.

Stir in the vinegar, cream or milk, basil, salt and pepper.

Ladle into soup bowls. Serve immediately.
(for TMJ) This soup is great for dipping bread in - it will soften into almost a mush - if you don't mind the texture.

    Really good recipe. I added 3 cups of white beans (blended) into the soup. It really made the soup thicker and added lots of protein. Also added 1 tsp cayanne and 1 tbl brown sugar. Really Good, thanks for the recipe. - 3/3/10

    I made this for supper. I scaled it down to four servings. I also entered it in my Mastercook program and used 1% milk. I got 86 calories per serving and 410 mg sodium per serving. It was very good as is but I did add a little sugar to the leftovers (amounting to 1/2 teaspoon per four servings). - 5/16/09

    For fuller body without the added fat try using evaporated skim milk. We love it that way! Thanks for a very flavorful and unique spin on tomato soup. - 12/6/09

    ***use a hand-held immersion blender*** -right in the cooking pot instead of transferring hot soup to your big blender - 5/30/10
